Snow Emergency Declaration December 20-21

Green Bay Declares Snow Emergency
(Release Date: Wednesday, December 19, 2012)

The City of Green Bay is declaring a snow emergency effective at 3:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 20, 2012 due to the pending winter storm. The snow emergency is in effect for all streets within the corporate limits of the City of Green Bay. Snow emergency restrictions will remain in effect until 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Friday, December 21, 2012.

Due to the predicted large snow accumulation and extreme conditions, residents are urged not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Reduced traffic contributes to resident safety and allows DPW to do its most effective job at clearing streets. During the snow emergency, the following restrictions will be enforced:

1) No vehicle can park on any street (day or night) until the snow emergency is over
2) Overnight on-street parking will not be granted for the duration of the snow emergency
3) Vehicles found parking on-street during the snow emergency will be tagged, ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense
4) On Friday morning, if your street has been plowed then you may park on-street even though the snow emergency may still be in effect

Again, the snow emergency will remain in effect until 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Friday, December 21 unless otherwise announced by the City. All Green Bay residents and property owners must follow these snow emergency restrictions so DPW can clear roads in a safe and efficient manner.

Depending on actual conditions, DPW’s storm-fighting strategies may change. If they do, we will notify media. Thank you for your understanding and support.
